Police officers living in two privately owned flats in Kahawa West, Kasarani have protested over seven families they claim are living in the houses illegally.
The two flats have been rented by the Kenya police to solve housing problems in the police service. The officers claim it is unfair for civilians to continue living in the premises while officers face housing problem.
Some junior officers live in rental houses in Kahawa West and Kasarani. "We wonder who pockets the rent." protested an officer.
Officers in one of the flats said they have been paying huge electricity bills while their colleagues in the other flat do not."We are all officers.
How come we pay electricity bills in the old block while the government pays bills for the new block. The junior officers also want senior officers living in the flats to vacate since they are paid house allowances. They also want the caretaker of both flats to be a police officer in order to beef up security.
